After 32 years of Blizzard, this legendary artist retires
After 32 years of working for Blizzard, Sam “Samwise” Didier, the artistic director is retiring. He contributed to the North American company’s first games, including Warcraft for which he defined the graphic identity as well as the name of the game. As an artistic director, he has made a significant contribution to the creation of the Diablo, World of Warcraft and Starcraft, and generally a large part of the games released in the last 30 years. It was on X (formerly named twitter) that he left a farewell message, ending it with a humorous note for his former fellow artists: “Always draw big shoulder pads.”
This Australian studio closes its doors
Alas, without giving any further explanation, the Australian video game studio Samurai Punk is closing its doors for good. However, they had proven themselves with FPS Screencheat and had collaborated with other studios to work on projects like the title Florence. Their latest game is Killbug, an arena shooter released in May. After almost ten years of activity, they are ceasing production, although their games will still be accessible.

The new extension of the The Sims 4 will see the light of day on December 7, and is already making fans dream.
